Hand Shapes

There’s something really special about shaping rooms…
Countless thoughts, ideas, and theories waiting to express themselves through board designs.
It is inspiring to see the excitement and energy in the shaper as they discuss and sculpt their craft.
The creativity is in their blood; it’s part of who they are. Each individual board; the intense subtleties that go into every curve and line, are a form of expression.
And anyone who has spent time in or around those dimly lit rooms, knows how valuable each board is to those who sculpted it.
Hand Shapes Will Never Die.
